THE DRAGLINE KID is a memoir about a girl growing up in Alaska and how she overcame unforeseen obstacles to find success and happiness. The classic American story. Who says someone has to be famous for their life struggles to be worth reading. I am so bored by books about Princess Diana and Elizabeth Taylor. With all the recent talk of tragedy and terrorism, what an inspiration it is to read a unique American story about an "unfamous" person who simply tells it well. Her narration is so familiar, it is as if she is right there in front of you sharing her life; like an old friend or someone you should already know.
I especially recommend this book to anyone who grew up in remote or rural surroundings. They will identify with the author's innocence and sense of humor. It is also a great telling of life in territorial Alaska and a good read for anyone interested in Alaska history, pioneer life or women's history.
ALSO: The pictures are a wonderful addition and treat.
